The Art of Protest
The New Haven Advocate recently published an excellent feature about the Beehive Collective's series of posters protesting Plan Colombia. The article touches on the role of anti-copyright media production, the importance of activist "convergences" as distribution mechanisms, and the United States' complicity in Colombia's human rights violations. Reporter Hank Hoffman indicates a deep knowledge of and involvement in protest-based politics, and this is one of the better accounts of a politcal collective's activities I've read in awhile. Worth checking out.

Thanks to Utne Web Watch.
